FAQ: Why would you leave pro-life ministry to go onto the mission field? Isn’t God using you here?

It is such a tragedy that our laws of our country do not protect the lives unborn children and therefore the responsibility to protect the weak among us rests upon Christians. This systematic killing of children through abortion has regularly brought tears to my eyes for the past several years. Nevertheless, there are Christians in America who are faithfully defending the unborn. The reason there are Christians in America is because men put their lives on the line in order to translate the Bible into English. If we did not have the Bible then we would not be Christians, and if we were not Christians then we might be the ones promoting abortion instead of fighting against it. Other language groups do not have a shred of God’s special revelation and therefore there is no one confronting them as they kill their children. Nor is there anyone confronting them as they abuse their wives. There is no one explaining to them that rocks and trees do not hear their prayers. There is no one teaching them how they can be forgiven for their sin. In America, there is hope for repentance because God’s Word is available. Where God’s Word is not, there is no hope for repentance – to me this is a greater tragedy.

May America no longer neglect the grace of God’s Word. May she read God’s Word and repent with tears that for so long we have permitted the killing of our children.
